Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't we get rid of one president for lying about a government-sanctioned hotel break-in? And didn't we oust another because lied about the oral endearments of a young intern? Last time I check, lying to us to justify a war trumps breaking into a hotel room and a blow job. Note the key word: lie.
They only thing Bush 11 has done is get caught in lie after lie after lie. Lies about the deficit, tax cuts, Social Security, the Iraq war. But we let him just keep on keeping on. What's wrong with us?
Would we put up with that kind of treatment from anybody else in any other situations? Hell no! Are we nuts? Why aren't we having a fit? Bush said that Saddam was an "imminent threat to our security." He said Saddam had weapons of mass destruction. He lied. We didn't find shit. Then he tried to twist it by telling us they found some equipment that could possibly be used to make WMD's. What kind of bullshit is that? I took a physics class when I was in high school, that don't mean that I'm at home whipping up bombs.
Why aren't we in the streets screaming for him to be impeached? Are we under some fear spell? He lied. I've seen people more upset when Whitney is a no-show. Let Streisand cancel a performance. It's chaos. "Babs said she'd be here tonight." She lied. "That cockeyed bitch lied!"
See, to me, America is like my car. I love my car. And my car is supposed to take me wherever I want to go as long as I keep the "governing" fluids changed and get regular tune-ups. That's what elections are; a nationwide tune-up----every four years. SO that makes the president sort of like........our mechanic.
And all we want from him is to just keep our shit running good. That's all. If he can do that without costing me an arm and a leg, cool. But, what if my mechanic was not with my car. A real-live Mr. Badwrench. Actually, more like a Mr. Fucked-up Wrench. Never fixed the car, just kept washing it. That's all, just washing it over and over and over again. My car's falling apart, but "it looks clean."
Wouldn't I get a new mechanic? Or at least give another mechanic a shot? Wouldn't I report him to wherever bad mechanics get reported. Damn right. Look, in November, since we couldn't just up and buy a new car, can we at least get someone to get this bitch up and running?
